The TV personality underwent a five-hour procedure just before Christmas to remove a tumour from his pituitary gland.

It was after doctors said it threatened to “blank out” his optic nerve.

The pituitary gland is a small structure, about the size of a pea, attached to the base of the brain behind the nose.

It lies in a small hollow in the skull, just below the eye, where it is protected by a part of the skull called the sphenoid bone.
